Blackboard Collaborate joining instructions

When you register for one of our events that is being delivered via Blackboard Collaborate, you will receive a web link in the confirmation email. We recommend you join the session 5-15 minutes in advance of the start time in case you encounter any problems with connecting to Blackboard Collaborate. We aim to start our sessions promptly.

Although Blackboard Collaborate sessions are hosted in Moodle, UCL's Virtual Learning Environment, you will not be required to log in to Moodle to join the session.

Please see full instructions at the following links:

To join a LibrarySkills@UCL session:

  • Click on the web link in the confirmation email.
  • You will be prompted to enter your name, then click on Join session.
  • You will automatically be admitted to the meeting, even if the trainer has not yet joined. Please remain on mute unless the presenter indicates that participants are welcome to unmute. Some of our sessions have large numbers of attendees, so generally we ask attendees to communicate using the Chat.

We are not able to troubleshoot individual technical difficulties with joining sessions. If you are unable to join for technical reasons, please register for a future session..
